Searching in Vidispine is implemented using either Solr or Elasticsearch as the backend. This allows functionality such as boolean operators, faceted searching, term highlighting, search term suggestions, etc.
Solr is the default search backend. It supports all features and works with both standalone Solr and SolrCloud.
- Elasticsearch 6.8.1
- The analysis-icu plugin needs to be installed. If you are using Amazon Elasticsearch Service, this plugin is already installed.
- Make sure to configure the search backend and that either
the search backend URL or the
elasticsearchPathproperty is set properly.
